Let us set the scene...
The year is 1899 and in a sleepy village in Provence, a young girl named Chloé lives a quiet life with her father. Chloé adores her father and is never happier than when she is spending time outside with her dog Raymond but deep within her there is a restlessness to see Paris.
The Paris Metro is soon to open, the Eiffel Tower stands tall and the city is vibrant,
Chloé keeps cuttings from the expositions in Paris and from articles in the newspapers and she dreams of walking the boulevards.
But...it's Christmas after all and sometimes don't dreams come true?
We are so excited to offer JOYEUX NOEL 2022 Sherry Iris Yarn Advent Calendar.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A PRE ORDER - the advents will begin shipping in late September/ early October 2022.
Please see notes below on shipping and packaging of your advent.
You will receive 24 x 20g minis on your chosen yarn base. This year we are offering a choice of 4ply sock, double knit or sparkly stellina. Each mini will be individually wrapped in tissue paper and will be presented in a numbered cotton fabric bag containing a short narrative. This year we are choosing some beautiful cottons that as always can be later reused in a stitchy project.
You will also receive a sock set consisting of 100g main skein and 20g mini on your chosen base. Perfect for your Christmas Eve cast on!
Also in your box will be a drawstring project bag sewn in colours to compliment the advent yarns.
We are very excited to include a DPN cosy made by the lovely Emma of Eldenwood Craft. Emma is a talented maker and her creations are always in demand.
The idea of the advent is that you take a few moments each day from 1st December to the 24th December to pour yourself a cup of tea (or a mulled wine..) and to open our yarny parcel, read the narrative and enjoy a little festive, peaceful time before the frantic business of December resumes.
The colours of the advent will be a surprise for you but you can expect some gentle colours reflecting Provence through to the bolder colours depicting a lively and vibrant Paris in the late 1800s - all seen through the eyes of a young Chloé.
Please see other listings if you wish to purchase minis only, or minis & sock set.
In the box, there will also be a few little extras to make this advent even more special for you, including some artwork by Chris @tiv.creates and a contribution from me.
